VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
Show Your Support
Our volunteers are a group of women who provide and invaluable service to our community and to survivors of sexual violence in South East New Brunswick. SESAC’s volunteers must identify as women in a way that is significant to them. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified. Involvement with the Centre gives volunteers the opportunity to gain experience, knowledge and skills in many areas, including crisis counselling, advocacy, non-profit organizations and a variety of issues related to sexual violence.
We are a feminist based, pro-choice organization that engages in action, prevention and education to promote the equality of all women in order to bring about an end to sexual violence.
Our volunteers take between 4-6 shifts a month, during which they are on-call. When requested, they accompany those who have been sexually assaulted to the hospital. Our volunteers are actively involved in different aspects of Centre work (i.e. public speaking, advocacy, fundraising, etc) and are expected to attend the monthly meetings.
